Sub_title: Racy6+
 

Initially I was intending to build a new Racy59 (or Racy6 from BarryK's coding) using T2's Version 9.0 with the normal woof2.

However I've decided to extend the project to a new structure and having both 32 bit and 64 bit versions available.

*********Marker, will fill in further details later.****************

Yes, this is slowly happening.

I am getting more and more into it on the T2 side towards completing that end of it and hope to have a first alpha for you all to play with in about a month.

My respect for BarryK grows hourly as he had to do all this from scratch, I at least have his legacy to work from. It's still a decent learning curve!

I also have a number of pet packages as updates for Racy 5.5.1 already built as an interim, which have their own thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=95699 and updated when as I get time. They will live on my website under www.lamiaworks.com.au/puppy/551updates when I get that directory setup, however links will be via the thread.

The T290 Compatable Distro Compiled Packages will be in a packagename-version.tar.bz2 form, which is the T2 standard and is already recognized by Puppy. Packages for the alpha will live on my website under www.lamiaworks.com.au/puppy/t290/alpha1 when I get that directory setup.

And please note that this IS A RACY EQUIVALENT and NOT A WARY Equivalent. T2 Version 9 is a dynamically developing system and changes seem to happen with package version updating daily. Although i shall do a lockdown on updates for the first alpha. Although I might do a stepback version AFTER I have the first Beta out if there are enough requests and time permits.

Now, now!

Here's a fresh bone to chew on Wink !

It's in the source repository, but it's not built and included by default for X86 so I won't be, at least for now.

In fact, the first test alpha release at present won't have either xorg or a desktop in it. I want to thoroughly test the underlying system to be stable before moving forward.

Although this may change after this weekend after the group have a 'talk' about it.

late update , sorry,
since barry is BACK and playing with the T2 repositry and adding puppy packages to it I've put this on hold for the moment while he sorts it out from a puppy perspective and I look at another idea i've been considering since mage2 that will also be added if it works out.

On the other hand T290 will be a racy551, just with updated (and extended) packages, even has the libso6 stuff. My worst problem is actually grub and it's variations and i'm looking at a replacement that will autobuild from your menu scrip. I'm giving myself until feb1 2015, else I shall just re-build and release what I have done as a testing alpha/beta.

teaser: consider a basic puppy without apps, something like myz was but even further cut down. What about one that builds what you want in it from the source code, and even finds and builds dependancies for those that are not there already. We have the packages to do it, just not the scripts.
